Our pork is receiving rave reviews, and we know it’s because our pigs are loved and appreciated, their bellies scratched and heads petted, as well as having a diverse and varied diet full of soaked organic grains, duck eggs, fresh veggies and fruits, our own organic hay, and all that they dig up as they root in the soil. A very important part of our pig-keeeping practices is to help our pigs live incredibly relaxing lives with us here on LTD Farm. All three of these elements make an enormous difference in the pork. ALL pigs should be treated this way, but sadly most are not treated all that well. You can go ahead and feel wonderful eating our high welfare pork and supporting our efforts toward raising these incredibly intelligent beings in a natural way with kindness and respect. At the end of the day, our pigs are unfortunately/fortunately incredibly delicious as well.

The lady ducks are greeting spring enthusiastically, bringing their fabulous eggs to us each morning. We collect eggs three times a day, and each and every one is carefully cleaned by hand and inspected by candling for perfectness. Our ducks go outside every single day, no matter the weather. They eat copious amounts of hay over winter when their paddocks are covered in snow, but we all look forward to fresh greenery sprouting up as the snow recedes and this never-ending winter finally ends!P1090078

Our new little ducklings have arrived from Pennsylvania and are doing very well. They are enjoying the sun during the day, while staying cozy in their brooder for their first month while they grow from palm-sized eensey bits to big girls. As you can see they are very inquisitive!P1100017P1100006

The snow keeps hanging on! Aren’t we all SO ready for spring!? We’re gearing up for a wonderful season with these starts to spring: May had her baby goat, named Molly. Goatmilk soap production has begun for the year on the front stoop. The pigs are growing like crazy, while maxing and relaxing in the hay between snarf-fests. We have 2 acres of fence panels to install for their forest paddock as soon as the snow melts, and we can’t wait to see them galloping around under the pine trees. The ducks and geese are beginning to lay eggs and we just brought our first egg delivery to Seward Co-op in Minneapolis, soon we’ll be bringing orders to the other co-ops as well. Seedlings are sprouting in the house and in our greenhouse…we are ready for spring!
